Movie Reviews

Wonderful variety, excellent technique
Robert Rowe | 04/02/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As an underwater videographer myself, and having ordered several of these type products, I have to say that Rusty is not only very well traveled but also brings a sense of flow and visual taste combined with superb camera and editing technique that makes this offering head and shoulders above the rest. Many underwater shooters neglect to use available tools to recreate the vibrant colors and sense of calm fluidity that makes the diving experience so magical. Novice divers, nondivers, and hard core gear-heads will all find something to admire and be inspired by here."
Diverse scenery, Relaxing music, Peaceful and Calming...

"What makes this a five star DVD, in my opinion, is the diversity of scenery - the program takes you to the undersea realms of Hawaii, Costa Rica, California, La Paz, and several other places where life under the veil of the ocean is celebrated with stunning visuals. It is thoughtfully composed, beautifully photographed, and paced well. We found it meditative and very relaxing.

I'd have to respectfully question the two star review by Ten Pence "Ten." Wouldn't one surmise if the program is worthy of being looped, it certainly is worthy of more than two stars? I digress... I do agree however that a looping feature would be a pleasant addition. At nearly an hour, its the perfect length for carving out a break in your busy day to refocus, relax, and re-center your inner self.

"This is the best use of underwater photography I have ever experienced. Rusty did a great job of bringing us up close and personal with the creatures of the sea. Thanks for the trip and great music."
No voices, just lovely music to enhance the pleasure you....

"...will feel as you watch the undersea wonders before your eyes. Anyone who has dived, or has imagined it, will find this a wonderful meditative experience. Beautiful film, calm and engaging."
